played there on Thursday and again on Saturday , course is awesome . A little hard for me because I am not to good yet. But is is a beauty, meet the parks supervisor on Saturday checking out what people think . Now if we can get everyone to pick up there trash and keep it nice . I will be back many times.

Yep it's got 18 playable holes in now. Just needs some trees taken out on hole 12 and it'd be perfect.

course is looking amazing...there is now tee pads on every hole...now we need some more hole signs and clear 12 up and it'll be an amazing course

I agree with Lammi there is a difference between a challenge and pure luck. A few trees here and there will make the course challenging and not all luck.

Please feel free to stop out to the course and see Garry who is the crew leader on site. Garry and Tony are also players and welcome your constructive suggestions. they will be there this week from 9am-3pm thru Friday. The course was designed to be recreational but also challenging.

Still needs more more trees gone on 11 to the basket 12 the first bend 15 all little trees between the basket and teepad 17 that silly branch that goes across the fairway befor kids brake it 18 all the trees in the lying in e fairway and the last 100 feet is impossible! It's not fun to hit trees every shot!

All baskets except for hole 17 are in teepads sjould be done by end of the week

The disc golf course work was slowed due to the maintenance needed in hosting the national soccer tournament. Personnel will be back out next week to intall baskets and tee pads. It sounds like full speed ahead in the next few weeks. Once again if anyone witnesses tree cutting let us know as it is unauthorized and is destruction of township property. Thanks for the extra set of eyes.

When are they gonna do something besides lay wood chips? Wood chips dont matter when theres no pads or baskets.

Saginaw Township has not authorized any recent tree removal. If any activity is witnessed please contact the Township office at (989) 791-9870. thanks for your help in keeping this course safe for players and non players alike.

FYI everyone. Pad #5 has been moved 80' to the north due to the high volumne of walkers thru this area. Former placement made it a blind shot. this hole is now back open and playable.

Thanks Jakkob. 11's tee pad is in a temporary spot and may be able to be adjusted. Garry who is out on the job is taking a look at your suggestion.The 18th is being revamped and the mando will be thru the woods. Because of future additions to that park area nothing will be in the open field. Feel free to talk to Garry and he said he would be happy to show you .Keep the suggestions coming.!
Jakkob Lammi May 25, 2012 at 11:26am
Townships been there 3 days now and it's starting to look good all back 9 are cut out and being wood chipped. Baskets and tee pads will follow! Only thing I see is 11's tee pad should be a little more to the right like 40 to 50 feet, and open up the last 200 feet of the end of 18 a little more! But it's looks great awesome job!!!!
